Stretch goals

Juegos de salón

Juegos de salón are games that are played in player-built taverns or in-node taverns.[5]. Some will be dice games, others will be card games; and some will be less savory.[6]

The idea behind the tavern games is to create another social interface. This is where players that are loving the RP aspect of MMORPGS- they want to walk into a tavern and meet new people and play games.[7]Steven Sharif

  • These games will involve aspects of both chance and skill.[6]
  • They must be played between 2 or more people.[6]
  • Players will be able to wager in-game currency against other players.[6]
    • The developers are considering a secondary currency for tavern games that would enable purchase of cosmetic items through a secondary currency market.[7]
    • There may be a ladder system that contributes to gaining this currency based on placement on the ladder.[7]
    • The alternative is to use the regular currency (gold).[7]
  • A portion of the income from the game goes to the tavern owner or node.[5][6]
  • Parlor games will vary based on the predominant race of a node.[7][6][8]
  • There may be unique games that can be acquired through adventuring in the world.[7]

Juegos de salón were a Kickstarter stretch goal.[9]

Cute small pets

Doggit and Peacat pets. Winners of the Kickstarter Cute small pets stretch goal vote.[10][11]

Cute small pets were a Kickstarter stretch goal.[12]

Group mounts

Multi-passenger group mounts were unlocked during the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.[13][14]

  • These mounts will be elephant sized or larger.[15]

The group mount is gonna be a very difficult mount to achieve, but once achieved it's gonna be very fun and and pivotal in gameplay. So the idea there is to have them grand.[15]Steven Sharif

Backer only weapon skins

Kickstarter backers will receive a unique weapon skin.[16]

  • Usable on all types of weapons.
  • Include subtle and tasteful glow/particle effects.

Enhanced naval combat

Naval content refers to content above and below the sea.[19][20]

Naval content was unlocked as part of the $1,500,000 Kickstarter stretch goal.[25]

Naves for "island hopping" may be included in Alpha-1.[26][27]

  • Temporary teleportation points will be present in early tests until ships are introduced later in the alpha testing.[26]

Backer only armor skin

All Kickstarter backers receive a unique armor skin set.[2]

The Underrealm

Alpha-0 Subreino environment.[28]

One of the aspects of the Lore behind the Tulnar was that in the pantheon of gods that exist- having foretold the future through the Goddess of Fate to the Goddess of Creation- these areas in the Underrealm were created in to allow for refuge for which the gods knew would be left behind that couldn't make it to Sanctus. So that was a pre-thought there in the creation of the Underrealm to facilitate that realm where refugees could seek.[29]Steven Sharif

Alpha-0 Underrealm Sharptooth cat mob concept art.[28]

We plan to have the Underrealm really pervasive throughout the game itself, a part of the open world. It will introduce some unique elements such as the type of monsters you see, the type of crops you can grow and houses you can have.[30]Steven Sharif

The Subreino is a rich environment where bio-luminescence abounds in the fauna and flora that exist here. These deep caverns and underground valleys provide new destinations for civilization to develop. Bringing the node system into the depths of the world may awaken darker creatures than the surface.[31]

  • The Underrealm is estimated to be 100 km2 in area.[32]
    • The underrealm is not contiguous across the entire map. There will be areas that are obstructed by chasms or other features.[33]
    • The location of Underrealm entrances throughout the world is focused around natural geographic choke-points that exist above ground. This provides alternate subterranean routes that can be used by caravans, raids, and other player activities.[33]
    • Not all entrances to the Underrealm will be open at the same time. This can shift dynamically (based on node states) that cause different routes to open up, which may be more or less advantageous than other routes.[33]

The expansiveness of the Underrealm itself is quite large. It does persist across across a lot of the playable game area that's above ground. So there are alternatives in the Underrealm for passages and traversal throughout the world.[34]Steven Sharif

We've also talked about node states affecting what openings are open and what things are closed. So not all entrances to the Underrealm will be open at the same time. So that configuration can shift and different routes will open up and be more advantageous than other routes.[33]Jeffrey Bard

Backer only aquatic mount

Tidesnapper is an aquatic mount that has the ability to glide through the water.[37]

Organizaciones sociales

Organizaciones sociales are ways for players to interact with the world around them in a different manner. They are about creating micro communities within the game.[39]

Organizaciones sociales start to patronize Nodos once they advance to Pueblo (stage 4).[40]

The whole idea of these societies is that they are a mechanism for progression that do not have to rely on your level progression. These are different progression paths that players can participate in. If you don't want to leave a node in your gameplay experience and you want to find as much as you can do within that city, these offer those things. Now, some quests might take you outside of the city to you know hunt and pursue things, but you could also perfectly be a person that is a merchant and purchases them from other travelers instead of having to go do it yourself. We want to offer players a diverse method of progression; and these systems house those benefits.[41]Steven Sharif

Organizaciones sociales function a little bit like factions, but without flagging mechanics.[42]

Sometimes two organization's goals might not align with each other and there'll be conflict there, but it's not going to be like everybody in the Traders Guild is at war with everybody in the Thieves Guild.[42]Jeffrey Bard

Organizaciones sociales are run by NPCs, however there will be ranks that certain members can attain that will grant some influence over the organization.[43]

Backer only dye set

Dyes are one-time use items that apply a cosmetic color change on certain dyeable items.[44][45]

  • Only one dye can be used per dyeable items. A player is free do use different dyes on different dyeable items.[44]

The Kickstarter dyes are sets of unique colors that are not obtainable by players who did not participate in Crowdfunding. These dyes are not usable as normal dyes are. Instead they are used to override the color of another dye obtained in game.[46]

  • They are assigned to a character from a user's account management page.
  • They do not expire, so they may be used to continually override dye colors.
  • Once a dye has been overridden it becomes a bound dye to that character, so the colors cannot be sold for in-game benefit.
  • When an item is sold or transferred, color changes are reverted.

New Underrealm race

Arte conceptual del Subreino.[31]

La sociedad Tulnar funciona más como un sistema de castas, donde tus características físicas y la mezcla de razas de tu linaje determinan en cierto grado tu posición en la sociedad. Así que cuando los jugadores creen su personaje y decidan si poseen influencias reptilianas, mamíferas o humanoides; deberán tener en cuenta que eso determinará la recepción que tendrán contigo ciertos NPCs, así como tus interacciones con otros jugadores Tulnar.[47]Steven Sharif

Los Tulnar son una raza jugable en Ashes of Creation.[48][49] Los Tulnar huyeron al Subreino para escapar de la corrupción que asoló Verra.[50]

  • Los Tulnar son una combinación de las cuatro grandes razas y muchas de las razas menores que se quedaron en Verra después del apocalipsis.[51][52][49]
    • Anteriormente se había mencionado que eran tres razas diferentes.[53]
  • Tulnar significa "los olvidados".[49]
  • Los Tulnar no están limitados al Subreino (no hay facciones).[54]
  • Los Tulnar comen muchas cosas![55]
  • Los Tulnar no son resultado de la corrupción.[56]

¿Fue la creación de los Tulnar un efecto de la corrupción o es sólo el resultado de la cruza entre múltiples razas mayores y menores que sobrevivieron en el Subreino después del apocalipsis? Ellos no son el resultado de la corrupción, por lo que no se tomó en cuenta ese factor durante su creación.[56]Steven Sharif

The Tulnar race will be in place before Alpha-2. Concepts and early works are expected at that time.[57]

Backer only mount barding

Mount barding cosmetic reward for backing at the Leader of Men level.[58]

Mount barding (also referred to as Saddles) is armor for mounts in Ashes of Creation. Mount barding is similar in concept to player armor.[59]

  • The higher the level of barding, the better looking it will be.[59]
  • Barding will have multiple components that can be equipped. Each component will increase the stats of the mount, such as hit points and speed.[60][59]
  • Barding cosmetics can only be applied to mounts with barding cosmetic slots.[61]
  • Cosmetic skins may only be applied to barding/saddle items that are earned in-game.[62]
    • Barding skins' appearance may differ depending on the type of mount.[61]

Backer only skill FX

All Kickstarter backers will receive a skill effects (FX) set.[63]

  • Includes unique colors and additional effects for certain skills. For example: A mage with her fireball skill may fire off a ball of searing white flames as opposed to the traditional colors of that skill.

Stock exchange

As nodes develop, player governments may open a Stock exchange (also called Stock markets and Sharemarkets) where players can buy and sell shares in Nodos, Gremios and Organizaciones sociales.[64][65]

  • There is no regulatory commission to restrict the purchase and sale of stocks.[66]

Crowdfunding guild rewards

Guild themed character cloaks were cosmetic rewards for backing at the Leader of Men level or higher in the Kickstarter and El verano de la financiación campaigns.[67]

Kickstarter/El verano de la financiación guild rewards[68] are assigned to a guild by the owner of the reward.[69]

  • Once assigned, the reward becomes an asset of that guild.
  • Guild members that leave the guild no longer have access to the unique items of that guild.

Crowdfunding mounts

Kickstarter/El verano de la financiación mount rewards are obtained and utilized by applicable backers in the following way:[70]

  1. Basic mounts are obtained through an early quest that is available to all players in starting areas.
  2. Players assign cosmetic skins to a character on their account from the account management page.
  3. The skin can then be applied to change the appearance of the mount that was earned in game.
    • This does not remove the skin itself. It can be applied again to any other applicable mount in the future.
    • Players may remove the skin from a character and assign it to another character on their account.
    • Skins can only ever be active on one character and one mount.

The Dawnbreaker mount skin is used in a similar fashion as described, but is only applicable to a certain class of mounts. Aquatic mount skins, like the Tidesnapper, are also used in a similar fashion, but are only applicable to the aquatic class of mounts.[70]
